Topics regarding layoffs at Sikorsky Aircraft


So, what do you think happens if Sikorsky looses the FLRAA competition. The legacy 60's and 53K will still be there, but work could be spread thin.

Much more to the story

Sikorsky has known about wpb plant closure since before we negotiated our last contract. That is ridiculous that the company withheld this information till recently. We all have to understand the company that we work for and their lack of respect for... —  read more 

Union Busting 101

I think LM's incompetence will work in our favor. Once they realize that logistically, what they are trying to achieve is impossible. Couple that with the beginning of a severe labor shortage and presto, LM needs more workers of meet delivery... —  read more
